    Circumferential Tummy Tuck Recovery Phase

    Like any surgery, you are likely to encounter few postoperative changes which completely subsides during the recovery phase, like bruises, inflammation, pain, uneasiness, which regress within forty-eight hours. You may sense pressure on the abdomen. However, this pressure is uniformly distributed due to the hi-lateral tension technique, ensuring a rapid recovery.

    It is important to remember that the high-quality equipment like MicroAire and VASER used in this procedure further expedite recovery. These minimally invasive liposuction devices, combined with the suture plication technique that further narrows the waist and evenly distributes tension, promotes a more comfortable post-op experience.

    Your transformation suitably to your expectations bestows a new outlook after the surgery. Your new attire results from your ardent emotional, physical and financial commitment to your new garment. It is essential to adhere to a healthy balanced diet and lifestyle to maintain your results.
